Hot air Rotation

  1. Nov 13, 2009 #1
    Imagine a closed container (full of air) that allowed sunlight or other heat inside the bottom half, but block or reflected this heat on the top half.

    Would this create a consant rotation of air being heated and going up, then cooling off and falling back down?
